The Knicks continue to make changes to their front office, and they have now hired Craig Robinson, who has coaching and executive experience on both the college and professional levels but perhaps is best known for being the brother of Michelle Obama, the former first lady.

Robinson’s appointment has not been announced but was confirmed by a person in basketball with knowledge of the situation who did not want to speak publicly about a move that is not yet official. The Vertical was the first to report that Robinson will be joining the Knicks.

Robinson’s exact title is not yet known, but he is expected to have a versatile role, including working with the Knicks’ G-League team.

The 55-year-old Robinson was a head coach at Brown and Oregon State, and last season he was a vice president with the N.B.A.’s Milwaukee Bucks, in charge of player and organizational development.

He will now join General Manager Scott Perry and Assistant General Manager Gerald Madkins in what will be a new-look Knicks front office. All three have come aboard during the past month after Steve Mills was elevated from general manager to team president following Phil Jackson’s dismissal from that role.

Robinson and Mills were teammates at Princeton, where they played for the legendary Pete Carril. After a nondescript professional basketball career, Robinson became a vice president at Morgan Stanley Dean Witter and then a partner at a boutique investment bank.

But he was still smitten with basketball, and in 2000 he took a job as an assistant coach at Northwestern. In 2006, he became the head coach at Brown, and he then took the same job at Oregon State two years later. He stayed there for six seasons before being fired in 2014.

During his years as a college coach, Robinson was an open supporter of Barack Obama in his first bid for the presidency and then his re-election, and he introduced Michelle Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Although Mills has not been team president for long, he is quickly making a break from the Jackson era, which lasted three years. When Jackson took over in New York, he made only one significant addition to the front office, bringing in Clarence Gaines Jr.

Mills has already added three new faces, and it now becomes more of a question as to what might happen to some of the front-office holdovers who preceded Jackson and still remain.
